The Aphrodite fritillary is a large fritillary that is maddeningly similar in appearance to the Great Spangled and Atlantis fritillary. They are all very common and often you can find all three types fluttering around milkweed in the same field. I’m not exactly sure if this is an Aphrodite or not. If a butterfly expert happens to come around this photo, please feel free to Bmail me if I’m wrong. I captured this male with my Nikon D3100 and the Nikon 85mm macro lens. It was taken at Lake Telemark in Rockaway, NJ. It was taken in the summer of 2011.
